To say the Big East title is there for the taking this season is an understatement. In a conference with just eight teams, South Florida is picked to finish in second place, behind Louisville. The season kicks off on Saturday night with a home game against FCS opponent Chattanooga.
Game time: 7:00 p.m. ET
Location: Tampa, Fla.
Big things are expected from senior quarterback B.J. Daniels this season. The Tallahassee native has started at least 10 games in each of his last three seasons. As a junior, Daniels threw for 2,585 yards, 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 601 yards and six touchdowns.
The Chattanooga Mocs do not figure to pose much of a threat to South Florida. The team went 5-6 last season and lost 40-7 to Nebraska in its only game against an FBS opponent.
